SUMMARY

Small-Town Secrets Refuse to Stay Buried

With a flash of blinding headlights and the scream of metal on metal, Nell McGraw’s husband, Thom, is killed and her life is shattered. Now she’s alone in Thom’s Mississippi hometown, trying to care for her grieving children while returning to work as the publisher of the newspaper Thom’s grandfather founded.

When Nell is called to a site where human bones have been found, she’s determined to see the guilty parties receive the justice they deserve. But in Pelican Bay, stories from the past are too dangerous to be told. Threatened by men who want their secrets to stay hidden, as well as the family of the drunk driver who killed Thom, Nell finds that if justice is to be served, it will come with a deadly price.

Praise:

"Reid's exciting debut, filled with action and philosophical musings about the enduring weight of the past, will make you both sad and mad."—Kirkus Reviews 

"Roots of Murder combines a gripping mystery with well-honed literary fiction."—Mystery Scene
